Transition Lower - Upper secondary level

Many adolescents experience difficulties at the transition from compulsory education to upper-secondary education. From 2006 to 2010, cantons, the Confederation and professional organisations implemented the Nahtstelle project (interface project) in order to analyse problems and to take measures for improvement of the transition from compulsory education to upper-secondary education. Examples of messures of the Nahtstelle project include: improvement of career selection processes, better coordination between the requirements of lower-secondary education and those of upper-secondary education, early identification and support of problem students already in compulsory education (case management), and identification of success factors for adolescents with difficult initial conditions to successfully get through vocational education and training (VET). The measures designed to improve the transition between compulsory education and upper-secondary education are continuing. More than 90% of young people complete upper secondary education.
